MAGPIE/ Prompt #81

SO HAPPY TO BE ABLE TO REJOIN Magpie/ Prompt #81  Hope to stay a while...thank you Tess, for the inspiration!

 
FOR WHOM?

To what purpose
are the crushed left to be observed,
for whom is this lesson?

I prefer that all archaic,
useless geometry,
be blown away.

Why stop to examine the broken,
as if we can see the heart
in each stone?

Sooner to dust
rather than later,

a flow of breath can free me
from watching decay
go on.
